Bach and Charpentier – The Advent of Christmas

December 21st 7:30 pm

 

Armonico Consort & Orchestra

Director | Christopher Monks

 

Bach Cantata BWV140 ‘Wachet Auf’

Bach Brandenburg Concerto no 4

Charpentier Messe de Minuit pour Noël

 

The majesty of Bach and the exuberance of Charpentier build the perfect way to begin the festive celebrations.

Wachet Auf’brings Bach’s most famous melody, which has inspired composers, artists and even Lloyds Bank! Bach’s genius for melody and counterpoint of the Cantata is paired with the delightful quirks of structure and instrumentation of the virtuosic Brandenburg Concerto no 4, written for violin, two ‘Flauti d’echo’, strings and continuo.

Charpentier captured all that was joyous about the French Baroque in his music. Messe de Minuit, written to celebrate Midnight Mass, contains his most effervescent choral writing; it is witty, engaging and melodious, and it is guaranteed to bring a smile to the face of any listener.

 

Ticket price includes a £1 contribution to our heritage fund.
